happening the week after scott prouty made that video, the 47% tape at the romney fund-raiser, it was the tape that showed us what mitt romney was thinking. there wasn't anyone there, marco rubio to some extent took on that 47% tape indirectly, but they don't seem to be acknowledging that the concepts advanced in that video were devastating. >> right. >> and you can prove it in the polls the following week of the campaign. >> right. >> as howard said, it is not the packaging, it is what's in the cereal box. they're trying to change colors on the outside and pretend there's an entirely new product and everybody will be excited on the inside. you mention governors. from a strategist standpoint, i am reminded last time the republicans were in this predicament, they lost to a democrat the second term. congressional leadership was deathly unpopular, it was the tom delay days, and there was a governor named george bush in texas who decided to become a compassionate conservative, start talking about and appealing to the so-called diversity that rush talks about. but i remember

of all during the election year that tape of mitt romney talking to rich people in florida about the people, the 47%, who aren't rich? priebus talks about outreach to the young, yet it was his party that opposed issues important to younger voters. marriage equality, abortion rights, gun safety. and he's still talking, actually pushing big tax cuts for the rich and cuts in medicare and medicaid that affect the middle class and poor. what a strange thing it is to hear reince priebus talking about building bridges when he was the one with his hands on the detonator? former pennsylvania governor ed rendell is with us as well as managing editor of the grio joy reid. i'm just wondering, why would a political party believe a new fr strategy would cover up for its policies? >> it makes no sense at all. first of all, their policies are bankrupt. they're the exact same, and they haven't changed their policies a bit, chris. you see republican state legislators pushing antiabortion bills that are clearly unconstitutional, clearly punitive to women. no exceptions for incept and rape. things t
throughout the country, that on the floor of the house today we passed the ryan-romney republican job losing budget bill which repeals the affordable care act. at least the part that's about care. it takes the savings that we have in the bill, uses it to sustain their tax breaks for -- that are unnecessary and not job creating for special interest. so it's sort of a hoax that you would take the money and repeal the bill. so no benefits but we'll keep the savings. it is in sharp contrast to the bill that was our democratic alternative put forth by chris van hollen, our ranking democrat on the budget committee. and that was a bill that's job creating with investments and innovation and rebuilding our infrastructure and innovation that relates to energy. it's about investing in education so that we are competitive and number one to build that, strengthens and sustains our commitment to our seniors, whether it's their economic or their health security. in contrast to the ryan bill, billion, almost $100 $the 8 billion from pell grants, $100 billion from pell grants, and in the decade ends the is

ago. >> if you don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee. and lose. >> and here is ann coulter this weekend, landing one squarely on the jaw of the very same guy she once wanted to elect president. >> even cpac had to cut back on his speakers this year by about 300 pounds. i'm now a single-issue voter against amnesty. so christie's off my list. >> the next national election is still 596 days away. but there's no rest for republican party still duking it out. how long before a victor is declared? republican strategist mike murphy is not optimistic. predicting we will be stuck in an age of chaos and factional warlords for a while. the battle royale will be the 2015 presidential primary season. robert, you could hear dog wiss in the background during some of those remarks at cpac. this is, i think we've seen a messy republican party over the course of last several months. but the coming, the sort of head-to-head at cpac, i thought was the strongest and starkest example of the challenges the party faces that we've seen in a long time. >> whatever you describe how the campai
're communicating our message to voters. if we're not, the obama campaign did an incredible job defining mitt romney. if we were the party of the rich, that was basically six months of heavy advertising by the democrats. i think it was important to reposition ourselves. to talk to voters clearly about what we stand for. >> it sounds like what we're hearing, the mention is fine for the most part. no major problems with the message. it is how we are reaching voters and how we are delivering that mention. is that a fair assessment? >> i wouldn't say, there are things we can do to talk about our policies better. there are ways we can improve our message. he didn't talk so much about policies and i thought that's a clear point that needs to be made with regard to this rollout. there are a lot of tactical changes we need to make as a party and a movement to talk to people in a more clear way. >> save immigration. we'll talk about that. one of the major recommendations from the report has to do with the primary process. the rnc wants to move toward a shorter primary season. fewer debates in the last cycle.
son? we do know that last year portman was being vetted as a possible running mate for mitt romney. he said it had no impact in choosing paul ryan over portman. second, why is it necessary to have firsthand experience with a person or situation in order to figure out how to do the right thing? is an existential experience necessary to have existential position necessary for consent? >> i think senator portman made some pretty big inroads last week, but i think it's about being decent, and respect, people don't deserve to be disrespected. >> priebus stopped short of endorsing portman's position and obviously the rnc does not. here's house speaker john boehner. >> i believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. it's what i grew up with, it's what i believe. it's what my church teaches me. and i can't imagine that position would ever change. >> you know the church taught segregation before integration. and racial justice. churches do change. and their members as well. meanwhile, hillary clinton expressed her support of marriage equality in this advocacy video. >> i support
romney said something similar a few days ago. let's talk about how the purpose of this war is being purposefully misremembered. we're being told now today all these reasons to feel good about the war. is it accurate to say that donald trump may have been the only republican to tell the truth what he said this was supposed to be a war for oil. >> he was accurate in part. there were a lot of reasons. those two quotes appeal compared to the things dick cheney had to sayness documentary running right now which absolutely curdled my blood. oil was a part of it, but there were many other parts. as you go through each one of the players you find each one had their own special reason for getting us into this nightmare. >> i wouldn't say i would condemn every politician who supported this, but in the case of cheney, bush, mitt romney and rush limbaugh, people who avoided military service in vietnam and then supported this war, do they get a special place in satan's party room? >> yeah, i would think so, but cognitive distance is par for the course for the republican party. it didn't surprise
're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? ♪ >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation, on your radio, and on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: the republican party says we need a shakeup. yeah, they need more than a shakeup. they need a whole new plan a whole new message, a whole new set of policies. what do you say, good morning, everybody. great to see you this morning. it is tuesday. here we go. tuesday march 19th. hope you are ready to travel with us for the next three hours across the political landscape here in our nation's capitol around the country and ash the globe c and we'll take a quick stop at all of the highlights of the day. we'll talk about them, and we will take your calls, take your comments, your calls of course at 866-55-press. that's the toll free number. your comments on twitter at @bpshow and your comments on facebook at facebook/billpressshow. big
have commodity, you put the poll up and think back to november 6, obama against romney in florida and romney a terrible candidate, and he got, he lost by less than two points in florida. here she is, winning by 11 points over jeb bush, much more popular in florida than romney has ever been so that tells us it is very much pro hillary clinton and antirepublican and a little antibush but the republicans, the brand, we use the guy's name in the first section, the executive director of the pew poll which is a respected poll, said that the g.o.p. brand is on the verge of being marginalized. if that happens, how do you recover? i don't know. >> if that happens and they cannot do this we will get another party in the country because the democrats are unpopular too. there is a 70's percent, we all talked about this, antiwashington, antipolitical party. someone will fill the void. if the republicans don't do it someone will. >> hillary clinton has to stay as far outside the mainstream of washington, dc, infighting, as possible so resign when slow did was a well timed act, and pat is right:
hearing from mitt romney about self-departation? >> hey, thomas, it's good to be with you. if you think about it president reagan and president bush, 43, are the last two american presidents who pushed comprehensive immigration reform. so, you know, immigration reform is -- has to deal with economic opportunity and growth. and that is very consistent with republican economic policies. so it's something that where i disagreed with governor romney's position on that. but we've got to move forward. and certainly as a committee, we did call on the republicans in congress to come up with a solution that's comprehensive, dealing with immigration reform. we're not trying to say, look, we want to tell republicans in congress what exactly needs to be in the legislation. but we have got to deal with this issue. >> one thing, henry, from the rnc report about that exact issue saying young voter, increasingly rolling their eyes with what the party believes. when someone rolls their eyes at us, they're not likely to open their ears to us. that's again to younger voters. another thing important to you
million-vote margin between mitt romney and president obama. there's also some reference to the policy there. but it's unclear exactly what that would mean or where it would go. look, this just falls within the narrative of everything we're seeing in this country. as more and more republicans, more and more democrats and the american public evolves and has evolved quite quickly on this issue. and it's time quite frankly for our elected leaders in washington to catch up with the rest of the country. >> rock on, human rights campaign president, chad griffin, thanks for coming on the show. >> pleasure to be here, thank you, alex. >>> hash tag now is the time, it could be mantra for middle east peace. we will ask the new republican's ben birnbaum about the fierce urgency of a two-state solution when he joins us live from tel aviv, just ahead. hey, our salads.

, how to tackle women's issues in a way that doesn't repel women, as mitt romney did in november. >> lots of work ahead. thanks very much, brianna for that report. the report, by the way, repaired by the republican national committee, is remarkably blunt in discussing the party's problems. the rnc chairman is blunt, as well. reince priebus is joining us now live from party headquarters. reince, thanks very much for coming in. >> hey, wolf. thanks for having me. i told you it was going to be big and bold, and i know a lot of people didn't expect it this way. but that's what we delivered this morning. >> certainly did. in fact, i have a copy of it right here, and it's a lot of pages. and the type is pretty small. the font, we should say. let's talk a little bit about what the big problem -- is it a problem of messaging? is it a problem of organization? or is there a substantive policy issue that you have to change? >> well, i think that, you know, here's where i kind of focus in as chairman of the party, and it makes sense. this is where i would first go. and i just think that we h

the romney/ryan campaign. there has never been a better marketing campaign than the last year of republican politics. the entire debate promess, primary process, leading up to the convention the convention itself, was actually the perfect marketing for the genuine principles and concepts of the party, and so when you hear them say, we have a messaging problem, what they mean is we made the mistake of telling the truth. >> we told you exactly what we feel, and you don't like it. >> hal: that's a big mistake in moll ticks. the document itself has all of the content of a paul ryan budget. >> to reveal health care reform? >> exactly, but keep the money. we'll be back right after this, and we'll talk about the rape trial verdict that came down over -- stew benville and the amazing concepts that went with that. we'll talk about it after the break, and it points to the very problem of reporting and prosecuting rape in this country and the public response to it when it's a certain type of defendant, and it's right in line with where women are finding themselves in the electo
with the palestinians and broker an apology over a commando raid. he didn't win the presidency but mitt romney plans to have a say. he's asking political and business leaders to a four-day retreat in utah in june. the idea, look for solutions to the country's problems. romney says he wants to stay engaged in public policy. among those invited are new jersey governor chris christie and house budget chairman congressman paul ryan. >>> 149 airport control towers around the nation are set to close because of spending cuts. the faa says it is targeting low to medium traffic airports. closures could also effect big airports causing delays of as much as 90 minutes. i asked a former air marshal and union president representing air traffic controllers if this would affect air safety. >> there's no concerns for the public as far as safety is concerned. i believe with these closures we'll have somewhere between 150,000 flights that take off and land per year. to give you an idea of what the percentage is, there's more than 26,000 flights that take off and land every day. you are talking 150,000 throughout the
at the ryan plan in a little more detail. it's quite similar to what he and romney proposed. how is this different? some are calling it just the same old plan. >> well, again, i'm not sure that's true. i think the majority of americans think that the budget does need to balance at some point. the federal debt is too high. although we can disagree on some details, i think overall americans can agree, we need a budget. >> here's one detail. the ryan budget is dependent on repealing obama care which is all about guaranteed not to happen. so how realistic is it, congressman, that a budget is put out there that can never actually be implemented. >> it's increasingly apparent. it's not affordable. the affordable care act is basically costing too much. premiums going up too fast and i think we should dial them back or delay implementation. >> so do you agree that obama care is not going to be repealed? your jouft looking for an amendment to that? >> well, i have to tell you there's no question that implementation is not going to occur on time. in fact, one of the career folks over at hs
's plans. this so called autopsy is calling for the gop to shift its focus. >> reporter: after mitt romney lost last november, party leaders, ordered an autopsy on what went wrong. they released the findings in a report called the growth in opportunity project. >> we need to do a much better job crafting our message to appeal to voters from demographics who have not been voting republican. >> reporter: the report says they need to reach out to minorities especially latino voters who overwhelmingly supported president obama. republicans should tailor their message. >>> the message should be we are going to provide, opportunities, without regard to the color of your skin. >> reporter: it urges them to reach out to women. >> marketing politics is like a product you have to use messaging specific to the target to succeed. >> reporter: we asked voters downtown walnut creek. >> the generation my children are growing up and have a much different view of the world than the republican party of you know my generation or the generation before. > republicans are mired in the past i am republican i do
a candidate mitt romney who wasn't evolving he revolved. >> bill: we do a comp place of compilation of polls. about 53. >> thank you. >> bill: there is no doubt many people have evolved whatever you call it why? >> because the world is changing. >> bill: that's b.s. why? why are people changing? >> i think the media may have a lot to do with it. >> bill: the media? >> people are seeing maybe there is is more exposure. >> bill: ellen degeneres pop culture, we like ellen. >> some people are becoming more accepting. >> bill: and you? >> and i also think this is a complicated issue. you can see both sides to a lot of it. a lot of people say and a lot of issues black and white. on this issue there is a lot of gray. people have gay members of their family and they want to see them have the same rights and so on. so there is a gradual chipping away. i think that's happening with their. you are seeing a lot of people evolve. >> bill: they are valid answers but i think the other side who opposes gay marriage has not made their argument very powerfully. there is usually a reason why you oppose. religi
in the u.s. campaign where netanyahu more or less endorsed mitt romney for president. how much of the loathe that is coming from b.b. towards our president is kind of him trying to make sure that he has not done long-term damage to the relationship in that direction? we know what barack obama's objectives here are but it it seems to me netanyahu is making up for any hurt feelings he did over last summer. >> absolutely. there is a political balance here. if you can see the see-saw right now. netanyahu is weaker than re-elected barack obama. they need each other. but israel needs the u.s. to have its back, both because of syria, the civil war next door, the possibility of chemical weapons which would be, as the president said, a real game-changer, though, i'm told that they have no evidence that chemical weapons were used by the regime. the president is very clear that it would not have been used by the opposition. that was fallacious argument from the regime but no hard evidence they were used. if it were used, it would be a game-changer. but israel needs the u.s. for iran and t
the litmus test is elections. paul ryan was on the national ticket. he basically argued as did mitt romney, on the very well thing that the house republicans just passed. and the voters cast farvotes for more votes for u.s. senate candidate who is were democrats and far more votes for democratic candidates for the house of representatives. so that's the way we resolve these differences in our country, by elections. it was not really a very close call? >> the fiscal issue has not been resolved i. of course, it hasn't been resolved. hold on, mercedes, let's acknowledge what has happened, the deficits have dropped now for 3 straight years at a rate lower -- faster pace than we have seen since the end of world war ii. nobody wants to acknowledge that. but they are coming down because we did have to engage in emergency spenning when the chitanked and we are coming out of that. we have to have balance -- that's good. but what is really good is job creation and a strong economy. we are seeing the effects of austerity. they would trade our economy for theirs in a success. in realtime, as consequen
season moments likes this.here's romney at the naacp. >> i'm going to eliminate every non essential expensive program i can find that includes obama care (crowd boos) >> reporter: also on the table:remember all those republican debates? are you just going to keep talking? >> yes sir. >> or are you going to let me finish what i have to say >> reporter: the plan is to: -limit them. shorten the primary calendar. and move up the party's convention date some republicans say this report is an acknowledgement of issues. >> it's a start. is it the magic formula, the silver bullet to start winning elections? no. the bottom line: modernize the message. >> catherine: more bay area news -- coming this august bay area commuters will have another option to get around. a regional bike-sharing system. the bay area air quality management district is rolling out a seven- million dollar pilot program linking san francisco to san jose. people can will be able to buy passes which provide access to 700 bikes at 70 kiosks near bus and train stations. there's no word yet on pricing. >> the strike by san fr
low and really doing a great job. their this is a district south carolina win, that mitt romney won by 18 percentage points. so it will be a tough role for her. >> i will say i think having a woman against him is probably a plus. >> i think you're right. >> i am wondering -- >> there is another thing we haven't acknowledged, which is that perhaps it makes it easier. the rt sof scandal is bluntd a bit by the fact that he married the mistress. it sort of makes that whole thing a little more palatable. >> i found my true love. >> i'm wondering as i thought back about some of these in the past, brad pitt, for example, and angelina jolie, you mentioned -- >> the other connection i made right away. >> tom hanks married rita wilson. and the best of this, the best at this was of course, prince charles and camilla. they managed to change the p.r. around this story so well that the p.r. firm handling them during this time received an award for their work. getting these people back into good favorability numbers. >> if you're right about that, it will be interesting. you think about marrying t
. betting on romney victory. here is the re-elected more confident and assertive obama making a trip to israel. did that force netanyahu to be more con ciliatory maybe in. >> at the end of the conference, the prime minister talked about this is second term president and third term prime minister. they are stuck with each other, that's the honest truth. but it is more than that. they are both making a concerted effort to put a few nas ew face this relationship. the main goal is to introduce himself to the israeli public and tell them he has their back. this is coupled with diplomacy. as andrea mentioned, calling him bb, a nickname, an first name, but a nickname, he is sticking to that. he is not saying netanyahu, he is saying bb. so he has been scloes to israel and close to support for israel and they share assess ment on iran. there a clear effort on both parties to start anew and have a better relationship. but it goes beyond the prime minister and president. the prime menster not want just the president to put on a better face to their talks but also for the israeli public to trust
women. he was despicable in what he said about sandra fluke. but mitt romney talked about the 47%. they may not like each other but they are working together to alienate most of the american people. and that's what happened. >> joan, thank you for being with us. despite the fact that 57% of americans support the nra, why do they keep winning? for gun owners, winning this battle is not the only thing, it's the important thing. background check, 90% of americans support them. let your member of congress and senator know that for you on this issue winning is the only thing. also, you probably have seen this scene by the way, from last week's cpac convention where one participant defended slavery. we're going to talk to an african-american who is doing a black tea about black people who joined the tea party. >>> and going wobbly on ashley judd and taking down other democrats wither had. key democrats, including hillary clinton and bill clinton are lining up with other democrats. fasten your seat belt. >>> finally, why is cnn's dana bash running after michele bachmann. what is it that
worked with mitt romney's campaign, vice president of target point consulting. let me first say it is a treat to have you both here for me. i'm thrilled. >> great to be here. >> it's a fascinating topic. let me start by showing some nbc wall street journal numbers to talk about the trend. so in 2004, the question was asked, do you favor or oppose same-sex marriage. 30% favor, 62% oppose. today, eight and a half years later, 51% favor, 40% oppose. let me start with you. the trend seems quite clear. am i missing something? i want to make sure we're painting the whole picture. >> no, you're not missing anything. it's a pretty spectacular time to be a student of public opinion. because we're in the midst of one of the most profound public opinion shifts in history right now. everything is moving up. >> and what do you do, joel? you've -- i mean, look, you and i have had many conversations about the data and what's good and bad. but i would say that broadly what it looks like here is all the polling suggests things moving in a certain direction. what explains when something moves lik
of the economy. i mean, just for the sake of argument, mitt romney, all right, maybe not the best candidate but, still, a tremendous change he was offering, the governor was offering. tremendous change. people rejected that. and wanted this malaise and this giant colossus spending. maybe this is off othe table forever. maybe the entitlement state which mrs. clinton will embrace is the wave of the future. >> well, bill, look at one other issue that hasn't been directly mentioned and that's obama care. obama care remains unpopular. >> bill: absolutely. >> distinct possibility it will become even more so. she was for major healthcare reform. presumably she was supporter of obama care although as secretary of state she didn't speak about it is she going to repudiate obama care which may still be beloved by democrats but strongly disliked by a huge segment of the country. that's an issue that could hamstring any democrat running in 2016. so there is a lot out there a lot logical depend on the rules results. if the policy results are not so good. i'm going out on a limb here because she gets the demo
that election. he turned off women. he was despicable in what he said about sandra fluke. but mitt romney talked about the 47%. they may not like each other but they are working together to alienate most of the american people. and that's what happened. >> joan, thank you for being with us. joen walsh in san francisco. the city hall right behind her there. she should run that place. >> thanks, chris. >> you did a good job and explained by your performance here tonight and honest responses to my question, the problem. >>> coming up, assault weapons plan is ban. 67% americans do support assault weapons ban. why does the nra keep winning? if progressives want to win, draw the line, now background checks. 90% of americans support them. let's let your member of congress know that from you on this issue, winning is the only thing. also, you have probably seen this scene from last week's cpac conference where one participant defended slavery. we're going to talk to an african-american doing a documentary called "black tea" about why some black people actually joined the tea party. >>> going wobbly on a
searched on youtube for you i found an interview with mitt romney and also i found you doing the dougie. very diverse. >> you saw me do the dougie? >> i have heard. >> you never saw the b.e.t. soul trainer words when i did the dougie? >> i must have gotten up to get a refreshment at that moment. >> everybody saw that. >> it is legendary. >> of course it is. i did it really badly. >> no, i heard you were actually -- >> when you taech me -- >> you apparently need to teach me. i don't even know what the dougie is. >> do you know dougie? >> of course. >> he invented the dougie. >> who is on your show today? >> we have a lot on the president in israel. he was in the west bank. we have a lot of analysts, the president of the council on foreign relations is joining us and i invited ari fleischer the former bush white house press secretary. he is very active in the republican jewish coalition and i am curious to see what he thought of the president's speech, what he thought of the president's visit to israel. we have a lot coming up. >> all coming up in "the situation room." dennis rodman, a li
, this new ryan republican budget looks a lot like the old romney/ryan republican budget, that americans less than six months ago rejected at the polls. >> earth to chairman ryan. come in, chairman ryan. come back to earth, because people want to get to work. people want to make sure that the earned benefits that they pay for are there for them when they finally need them and i think what we have is a budget on the democratic side that reflects the reality of people on earth. >> all right. congressman, you want to respond to the democrat? >> we want to compete for the earthling vote as well. i don't really know what to say about javier there. i like javier quite a bit. we disagree on some of these things. we're the ones that have the bipartisan idea to save and strengthen medicare not only for the current generation but the next generation. we're the ones with the courage to say our entitlements need repairing if we're going to avoid a debt crisis and make sure they don't go bankrupt. we are the ones proposing fundamental tax reform which a lot of centrist democrats agree with us on this, wol
are being planned come out that on the floor of the house today we passed the ryan-romney budget,an jobs-losing which repeals the affordable care act to pick it takes the savings we had in the bill, uses it to sustain their tax breaks that are unnecessary and not job-creating for special interests. hoax you take the money and repealed the bill, but no benefits, but we will keep the savings rate is in sharp contrast to the bill that was a democratic alternative put forward by chris van hollen, our ranking democrat on the budget committee, and that was a bill that was job-creating, investments in infrastructure and innovation that relates to energy, about investing in education so we are competitive and number-one, to build and strengthen and sustained at have commitment to our seniors, whether their economic or their health security. in contrast to the ryan bill, which cuts almost $100 billion from $98 billion, from pell grants. $100 billion from pell grants --pet and crack grants grants. and is a job loser in the short and long term. the contrast could not have been different. one, a sta
? >> this district is definitely red. it heavily favored mitt romney in the presidential race. the state legislature which is controlled by republicans, they have drawn this district for a republican to be able to win it. so it would be very, very difficult for any democrat to secure a win here. that being said though, if anybody can do it, i think elizabeth colbert bush has the best chance. she's well-funded. she's doing well on the campaign trail. she has her famous brother who is helping her out which is getting her a lot of media attention. and perhaps most importantly she's a woman. she's going to be able to go head to head with mark sanford and throw a lot of these personal failings in his face and perhaps get a following among women voters that a man simply could not do. >> going to be interesting. that's for sure. gina smith, we'll be talking with you again. thank you. >> thanks. >>> it is time for the big three and today's topics, what went right, happy anniversary, and best week, worst week. let's bring in the panel, susan del percio, morris reed, and contributor for "newsweek" and the dai
shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of the washington. there is no precedent for something coming off a national ticket and going right back into congress wi
ago prime minister netanyahu made it very clear he prefered governor romney back in the 2012 election. however, prime minister netanyahu made it clear though that israel, quote, remained in the present of their right to defend themselves which is clearly talking about an attack on iran which is not something that president obama wanted to see. president obama who at times has been seen a little bit soft on iran for his part tried to make it seem that the united states would always have israel's back. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel because it is in our fundamental national security interests to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger. it makes us both more prosperous, and it make the world a better place. >> reporter: president obama has an uphill battle on this charm offensive going forward. martha, a recent poll done here in israel only 10% of israelis had a favorable or likeness toward president obama. martha: hmmm. that is a pretty rough number for him there, leland. what is he doing to sort of try to win over the people in israel during this t
in the span of eight years from 44%, that's what george bush received, to just 27% for mitt romney. alex, why do you think that's happened, can the party reverse it? >> i think we lost our way. we for got i think that this country at some point everybody goes back and their family came here from somewhere. most americans. and we forgot that the new blood re-energizes this country. and i think part of that was the contribution that, well, we didn't have secure borders and at a time when the economy is cratering, all of a sudden it became a very dark process, we're eating our own tail. more jobs for immigrants may have meant less jobs for someone else. and the way you lead yourself out of that is, no, no, everyone has something to con tribute. let's get an immigration process that brings people who want to come here, who want to become americans, who want to contribute to this country not take from this country. and that's always been the republican message. fortunately, they allowed a few republican media consultants to stay. i'm happy about that. but our problems are bigger than just hispanic
to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign in the senate races in the success of the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: we are taking your calls with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. our farmland or open democrats (202)585-3880 and republicans (202)585-3881. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know that they are getting and obama never talks about the trillion dollars in tax increases starting this year for

to play a little bit of governor mitt romney from cpac because he pointed out exactly that. let's listen. >> i would urge us all to learn lessons from come from some of our greatest success stories and that's 30 republican governors across the country. [applause] people like bob mcdonnell, scott walker, john kasich, suzanna martinez, chris christie, brian sandoval, these are the people we have to listen to and make sure their message is herd lout and clear across the country. martha: he said these are people we have to listen to. unfortunately you were not invited to the conference, governor. what do you think about that? >> that's fine. i spoken in the past a couple years. last year i spoke in washington and chicago at cpac. al cardenas is good friend. i spoke to the prayer brake fast on cpac on friday. and our candidate for governor, ken cuccinelli was the lead speaker. one governor is probably enough. no, look it's fine. i think bigger point we need to find a way to do, take the good, solid, conservative message, fiscal and conservative, demonstrate to people why it works. show that g
will just say politically i thought that was the greatest offer that governor romney had. he was a very good manager. in my opinion, we have had enough speech makers, we have enough war presidents, we have had enough grand and glorious stuff, we need somebody to run this government. like the presiding officer ran the state of virginia. and it takes hard work and you have to stay on top of it, and it would have been great for us to have had real top management so that every cabinet person when they are hired is -- understands they have a duty to produce more for less for the american people. and every sub cabinet and sub cabinet and sub cabinet person and every department head gets the message from top leadership on down, you're expected, like larry thompson and i did, to share a hotel room, if need be, to save your -- to save your debt, save the -- running up debt in the united states government. and this budget doesn't do it. i think we quoted earlier what "the washington post" said, march 15. in short, this budget document gives voters no reason to believe that democrats have a viable plan
former presidential candidate mitt romney. >> i will repeal obama care. and i'll stop it in its tracks on day one. >> reporter: the gop budget that passed the republican controlled house also includes a repeal of obama care. congresswoman michele bachmann warned the health care law is a killer. >> let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. >> but it seems it is the law that can't be killed almost like the legislative equivalent of kenny from south park. >> they killed kenny! >> reporter: but some republicans outside of washington have a different take. a slew of high profile gop governors recently accepted the law's massive expansion of the medicaid program for the poor into their states. the law's defenders say other popular provisions go into effect next year such as the ban on insurers discriminating against patients with preex-conditions. and new insurance exchange market places where people can shop for coverage. the white house says the repealers ignore that. >> that seems at some point to be time not well
the space is much as mitt romney got to the right of rick perry back in the primary and i think this seemed to me a real indicator, tipping point moment whether paul would seize that opportunity and the fact he made the calculation he did seems to me to cement what i thought at first was possibly a conventional wisdom that cemented too quickly which is you'll see the gop establishment the conservative elite keep sort of coalition together on immigration reform. >> right. it's particularly interesting given that it was an opportunity to get to the right of marco rubio who is definitely somebody who will be completing for similar voters if they both run for the nomination in 2016. you do have to remember, those that rand paul is somewhat philosophically libertarian. they believe in more expansion civilian immigration policy. it does show you the political restrictionist position isn't as strong. >> were you surprised? >> i was mildly surprised. i thought he would have couched it in terms where he was more clearly to the right of rubio. there's some nuances of it where the border security metr
